Location: Chemin des Canadiens
Today: Still there. There’s a monument on the Vimyhöhe for the Canadian soldiers that fought in World War 1. There’s also a graveyard and you can visit some tunnels and trenches here.
Hitler visited the Vimyhöhe on June 2, 1940. Altough Hitler’s regiment had been in the area in 1917, Hitler had never been here, because he was treated for an injury in Germany at that time.

After the trip in the North of France on June 2, 1940 Hilter got on a plane in Niergnies and flew to Charleville to meet Von Rundstedt and a lot of other generals. On May 24, 1940 a meeting like this took place at the Maison Blairon. This could also be the location of this meeting. After that he flew to Odendorf airfield (Germany) and went back to the Felsennest in Rodert, Germany.
